After-Birth Pains

I’m having my second child, and I’ve heard that after-birth pains can be worst with second babies. How did you cope with them?

Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: I was surprised by the intensity of after-birth pains, especially with after the birth of my second son. I tried Tylenol, but that didn’t even touch the pain!

Instead I took homeopathic remedies called caulophyllum and cimicifuga, and that took away the discomfort.
